US State Department spokeswoman, Geraldine Griffith, has stated that Gaddafi’s son, Saif Al-Islam, who ran for the Libyan presidential elections, is subject to US and international sanctions.

“The Libyan people should decide their fate”, Griffiths added, considering that the path ahead of the Libyans is still complicated, but they have a desire to achieve success in the diplomatic process, stressing at the same time Washington's readiness to provide the necessary support to achieve this.
